In a series of Twitter posts, Damon Wayans came out to confirm the reports of Crawford’s angry and inappropriate behavior while on the set of “Lethal Weapon.” Yesterday, executives announced they were firing and replacing him with Sean William Scott, the actor most famously known for Steve Stifler in the “American Pie” films, as well as a hockey player in “Goon.”
In a video posted to Twitter, the 57-year-old, Wayans, showed an explosion going off behind him. Wayans had a small wound on the back of his head, insinuating it was Crawford’s fault for doing so, as he was the one in control of the set.

Additionally, people on the set created stickers of Clayne Crawford and posted them all over poles in the parking lot near the studio. One read, “Clayne Crawford is an emotional terrorist.”
Damon claimed Crawford enjoyed making women cry and “struck fear in the cast and crew.” Wayans went on to slam what he called, “Twitter and the weirdo”s who don’t understand what a privilege it is” to be an actor.
While continuing to explain the hostile working environment in which he and the rest of the team worked, Wayans asked for his followers to “put up with this for two seasons.”
Moreover, Damon claims Crawford has a long history of infractions with Warner Brothers Studios and the company should easily “release the tapes.”
On the 24th of April, Crawford, 40, admitted he had a series of incidents on the set and reacted with anger a few times, something for which he is deeply remorseful. At the end of his post, the actor apologized for his actions and said he values “treating everyone with dignity and kindness.”
